Clark Kent's all about the ladies, according to coverage at TV Guide, where senior editor Matt Webb Mitovich said, "None of the first few scripts team up Clark and Jimmy. Instead, it's all Clark and Lois doing the investigative journo-ing."


You can check out screen captures of the promo teaser on this blog.


Director Edgar Wright told MTV that he plans to honor the comic book. "We've been working with Bryan Lee O'Malley, the author," Wright said. "He's been very much involved. Unlike some other adaptations I'm going to make sure the original author was respected."


CBR News has a feature article on actress Rose McGowan and filmmaker Robert Rodriguez, talking about the sword swinging cinematic experience.


CBR News also sat down with actor Samuel L. Jackson, producer Deborah Del Prete and director Frank Miller.


In case you missed it, CBR has the fifth video journal from the production showing the construction of the Owl Ship.


What was that silver car in some set photos? According to Jalopnik, it's a concept car celebrating automaker GM's hundred year birthday.


Creator Mike Mignola told MTV that he's concerned Guillermo del Toro's films will eclipse his printed work. "The problem is, what del Toro's talked about to me is that 'Hellboy III' would be the end of Hellboy," Mignola said. "And here's where we have the big conflict. My version of Hellboy in the comics is a finite story, but it's going to take me 15 years to get to the ending. If he makes 'Hellboy 3' and it's the death of Hellboy, I'm left doing the comic going, 'But I'm not done yet.'"


We can't do this without you. The rumors, the scoops, the set photos -- they're all fueled by passionate fans emailing in the goods. The ones who ask, "What do you mean your sister's dating somebody who works for Warner Brothers?" The ones who know the code names of movie projects and scour city permit filings for them. The devoted, the involved. Fans, just like you. Whatever you know, we wanna know, and whether you want your name shouted to the web's rafters or kept closer than a classified report, we've got you covered like a comforter. Broadcasting live from Los Angeles, this is your humble scribe Hannibal Tabu saying thank you for your time and indulgence, and what is The Hundred and Four?
